My question involves real estate located in the State of: New York
I own a house in NY and satisfied the mortgage in 1987. Through my attorney's advice, I gave life time rights to a disabled relative. I learned after five years that the documents were never filed. In 2010, I had to pay several hundred of dollars for delinquent taxes that was in the arrears for three years and a tax lien was pending. They are unable to repay me. Also the house is in need of major repairs and needs to be maintained. Am I bound by this agreement? Can I cancel the life time rights agreement and evict these people?
